This girl is totally adorable. (and she does the BEST stuff with her hair)
I've just finished looking through her entire photostream...I hope that doesn't sound creepy.
But maybe you'll understand if you have a look-see for yourself.

The shoes that fantasies are made of...
Beautiful, glorious, brutally expensive fantasies.

lucky number slevin

I received this award from my gorgeous friend Allie, and am ever so touched.
You should know that she's pretty awesome.

And now to meet the requirements of this award, I shall share with you 7 random things about meeee! (Wheee!)

1. I love baking. Love it love it. One day I intend to make the world's best chocolate chip cookies.

2. I really want to learn how to play the drums, but I don't have a use for that skill. There's never drums sitting around that you can just use. And I'm not in band.

3. I'm a little obsessed with things smelling good (including myself), therefore I buy an excess amount of lotions and soaps and candles and everything 'like such as'.

(This is not my house. But it'd be cool if it was, huh?)

4. I have a less-than-admirable attention span, and on top of that, I daydream a lot. Maybe the two go hand in hand. I'm trying to be more present and in-the-moment, that something shiny?

5. I laugh a lot, and I cry a lot. Sometimes I laugh 'til I cry, but I never cry 'til I laugh.

6. I have an "inspiration wall" in my study where I post...well, anything that inspires me. (didn't need to explain that one) Sometimes I just go stare at it for aHWile (that was for you, Allie). I always see something new, and it really helps when I need ideas for hair/makeup/whatever.
Here's a semi-crappy picture of it:

7. I have 4 siblings, and my husband has 8. (without even counting any of their spouses) And I love it. I couldn't ask for a better family. They make me so happy.

And I would like to pass this award on to the lovely ladies behind these blogs:

Bonjour Ennui
Lainey Turns the Camera On
Girl by the Whirlpool
Oh dear it's Liana
Gabby, she wrote
Grant family blog

Here's the rules:
Thank/Link the person who nominated you for this award;

2. Copy the award and place it on your blog;
3. Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself;
4. Nominate 7 bloggers and post their links.

Have a great weekend!

then and now

Bazaar June 1954:

When I saw this I instantly thought Chloé.
It emanates the same class and relaxed feminine feel.
Same type of silhouette and all that.

Couldn't you just see this look slipped right in there with a Chloé collection of today, like in between these two looks from the 2010 Resort collection:

Ah, I love recycling fashion.

Here's Audrey in "How to Steal a Million."

Adorable, No?

And here's a lace mask I stumbled upon over at The Audrey Hepburn Complex:

Hmmm....looks like it'd be pretty easy to make. Actually it just looks like black lace trim.
I don't know where I would pull this off but I love it.

And here's the original again, because now you should look at her amazing glitter eyeshadow.

And a couple more stills from the movie, because she sported some fantastic outfits.

Rain boots + pink lacy shift = WIN

It's a really great movie, and I'm not just saying that because of the clothes.

After approximately 3.5 days of nothing but sitting around, eating, playing Wii Super Mario Bros. (super addictive), eating, playing board games, and having an all-around fabulous time with my family (thankful), it's been a little hard to get back into the swing of things.

But my Christmas tree is up. So that's bringing some joy and cheer.

Hope you had a great holiday! (all those who celebrated)
(I know it's been like a week since Thanksgiving)
